Pintàc is a nuragic souvenir. You can try it as magnet, bijoux, and more.
Our project was born in 2015 in FabLAB laboratory of Sardegna Ricerche in Pula (CA) by collaboration between Alessandro Nioi, Daniela Siddi and Davide Melis. Our idea is to play archaeological finds such as pintadere * The giants of Mont'e Prama and other Sardinian archaeological finds in order to innovatively propose the treasures of our island.
*The pintadera are archaeological finds from the excavations of the nuragic villages. They appear as stone discs or circular shape in terracotta, sometimes with handle fitted sometimes not. The name comes from "Pintai" or "to paint" in Sardinia, it is supposed that the disks provided with the handle serve to decorate the bread, the body or tissues.
In fact many bronze statues depicting priests or tenderers, offer a decorated bread with the same paint. Other pintadere have not this handle, and according to recent studies it may represent an excellent times measurer.
The Mont'e Prama's Giants Among our reproductions you will also find two versions of the Mont'e Prama's giants and grinning mask of San Sperate , the oldest apotropaic mask found on the island;
